DL-Phenylalanine (DLPA) is a mixture of the D-form as well as of the (natural) L-form of phenylalanine. Since phenylalanine cannot be produced by the body, it is an essential amino acid. It can easily
cross the blood-brain barrier and L-phenylalanine is converted into the amino acid L-tyrosine;
this supports the formation of neurotransmitters (such as L-dopa, noradrenalin and adrenaline).
The D-form of phenylalanine cannot be converted into tyrosine, but is mainly converted into phenylethylamine. An important function of this substance is to support a good mental balance.
Most important characteristics of DL-Phenylalanine plus:
- Contains both the D-form and L-form of the amino acid phenylalanine
- Also contains vitamin B6, an important synergist in the metabolism of phenylalanine
Take 1 to 2 capsules daily, at least half an hour before a meal. Do not take the capsules together
with foods containing protein. Take half an hour after a meal to maintain a normal blood pressure.
The capsule may be opened if experiencing difficulties with swallowing. If no difference is noticeable the dose can temporarily (for approximately three weeks) be doubled or tripled. DL-Phenylalanine
is effective for about 60% of all people. If there is still no improvement noticeable after three weeks,
the person is probably not affected by DLPA and the treatment can better be stopped.
DLPA contains phenylalanine and therefore may not be used by people with phenylketonuria. Interactions with regular medication and other natural health products may occur. Please consult
an expert about this.
To facilitate the conversion of phenylalanine a number of cofactors are required, especially
vitamin B6 (present in the formula) and vitamin C. Besides taking this product it is also recommended to follow a healthy diet, as well as taking a basic supplementation of Multi Vital Forte, Vitamin C-1000 Ascorbate Complex and Omega-3 liquid (or Omega-3 capsules).
L-Tyrosine 400 mg.
